Background & Aims of the Study: Recently, there has been a surge of interest in spirituality and spiritual well-being due to their numerous beneficial organizational outcomes. Organizational commitment and turnover have been considered as positive and negative factors, respectively, in the success and productivity of organizations. Given the relationship among spiritual well-being, organizational commitment, and turnover, this study investigated spiritual well-being at the workplace and its relationship with organizational commitment and turnover among the employees of the selected textile companies in Qom province, Iran in 2016.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive-analytical study was performed on 222 employees of selected textile companies in Qom province. The participants were selected using the stratified sampling method. The required data were collected using three questionnaires, namely a demographic characteristics form, Spiritual Well-Being Scale by Ellison and Paloutzian, and Allen-Meyer Organizational Commitment Questionnaire. It should be mentioned that the validity and reliability of the Persian version of these questionnaires were confirmed. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation coefficients, one-way analysis of variance, and Chi-square in SPSS software (version 20).
Results: Based on the findings, the mean values of total spiritual well-being and organizational commitment of employees were 98.26±14.92 and 105.23±18.6, respectively. There were positive correlation coefficients and significant correlations between total spiritual well-being and organizational commitment (P˂0.01). In addition, the results showed that turnover had negative significant correlations with all aspects of spiritual well-being and organizational commitment (P˂0.01).
Conclusion: Based on the results, it is possible to optimize workplace conditions and productivity by improving the spiritual well-being of the employees.
